First I’m starting off with some tidbits about Labor Day:
Labor Day (Labour Day) is celebrated around the world to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. The majority of countries celebrate Labour Day on May 1, popularly known as May Day and International Workers’ Day. In Poland, the day was renamed to “State Holiday” in 1990. In Slovenia and Ukraine, May 2 is also a national holiday.
In the United States and Canada, Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September. Ireland (also called May Day) on the first Monday in May. The Bahamas on the first Friday of June. And New Zealand on the fourth Monday of October.
There! Aren’t you glad you were wondering about the whole Labor Day thing? And now, some Labor Day Quotes:
